‘Embrace the Panda: Making Turning Red’ Coming To Disney+ (US)

Disney+ has announced the full list of everything coming to the United States in March 2022 including premieres of new Disney+ Original Series, additional episodes of fan-favorite series, and new library title additions.  One of the titles that will be added to the service next month is “Embrace the Panda: Making Turning Red” which arrives on Friday, March 11, 2022.  

“Embrace the Panda: Making Turning Red” is a feature documentary about the all-women team at the helm of Pixar’s original feature, Turning Red. With behind-the-scenes access to Director Domee Shi and her core leadership crew, this story shines a light on the powerful professional and personal journeys that brought this incredibly comical, utterly relatable, and deeply heartfelt story to the screen.

Disney and Pixar’s “Turning Red” launches exclusively on Disney+ on March 11 and introduces Mei Lee (voice of Rosalie Chiang), a confident, dorky 13-year-old torn between staying her mother’s dutiful daughter and the chaos of adolescence. Her protective, if not slightly overbearing mother, Ming (voice of Sandra Oh), is never far from her daughter—an unfortunate reality for the teenager. And as if changes to her interests, relationships and body weren’t enough, whenever she gets too excited (which is practically ALWAYS), she “poofs” into a giant red panda!

The movie is directed by Academy Award® winner Domee Shi (Pixar short “Bao”) and produced by Lindsey Collins.
